Beauty calms the beast within.

My husband and I stayed at the Rainbow house for a too-short 2 night stay but as soon as we started up the path toward the property all the stresses fell away leaving us calm and and happy from the beginning. Other guests and Don's pictures describe the house better than I could but what I found really touching was how the very architecture and the grounds were infused with so much personality and thought. So many thoughtful details and charm. The colors and placement of windows... Don is so friendly and helpful and serene, the house reflects his personality. I am a late riser by default but I woke with the crack of dawn just to see the sun rise on the gorgeous view of the trees. Oh yeah, THE VIEW from the balcony and uh, every window...I miss this place already.
All you need for cooking is there. Small refrigerator, propane stove and there's a grill outside. Wear shoes with good tread. There's a tub which runs hot water! No shower.
The walk up to the property is short but a little steep. There are benches and neat little surprises along the way; not for the infirm. The house was immaculate and I saw only ONE spider whole trip. I see more in my own suburban home. Insects were not a problem. Loads of blankets and the small gas heater kept us warm at night. Plenty of sun in the late afternoon.
This house is more private than what I imagine the Dragon house to be because it is set further back but we passed through the arch of the Dragon house on the way up to Rainbow and we definitely want to try that one next. With 3 levels my husband and I could have head-space when we wanted. It's a dream. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area: beaches, restaurants, hiking... but, why leave this house when you don't have to?
Thank you thank you Don for creating such a heavenly peaceful retreat.
